With all my problems

You are the solution

In my heart, you are the one I want

Your love, O God, is so sweet

(Chorus) It's so good to praise in Your refuge

All that the heart desires can be found in you

Nothing to worry about

Even if the problem is around

As long as it's you, as long as it's you

As long as you, O God, are with me
